can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station by viewers like you. thank you. tavis: mark pinksy is the president and ceo of a nonprofit designed to align money and capital with political, economic, and social justice, opportunity finance network. ofm, and i am sure we will get to that. good to have you on the program. >> good to be here. tavis: i am not the only one continuing to do as much as we can on the issue of poverty, and this includes so much. what often does not get talked about is the fight back. i do not want to be guilty of only talking about the ugly and the bad but not talk about the significant work done by those who are trying to dig their way out over this hole that so many of all colors find themselves in. your company hopes to try to alleviate this pain and suffering. let me talk to you about what ofm does and get some specifics about the fight back on poverty. >> i appreciate your pain attention to this issue because it is one that often gets lost. opportunity finance network has what is called the community finance development institution
good evening. >> i'm judy woodruff of the pbs newshour. on the night of the state of the union address there is one subject almost everyone in the chamber is worrying about: the nation's continuing fiscal crisis. tonight frontline tells the inside story of how a clash of politics and personalities took the nation to the edge of the fiscal cliff. but those battles are not over-- more deadlines loom over steep mandatory cuts in federal spending, another debt ceiling vote, along with new worries over the effect of any cuts on a still-weak economy. at issue is nothing less than the size and responsibility of the federal government. we call the film "cliffhanger." frontline is made possible by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. and by the corporation for public broadcasting. major support for frontline is provided by the john d. and catherine t. macarthur foundation, committed to building a more just, verdant and peaceful world. more information is available at macfound.org. additional funding is provided by the park foundation, dedicated to heightening publ
hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: josh gad got a tony nomination, and he is now the star of the commonly "1600 penn," and here is a scene from "1600 penn." >> hi. what if i told you i found a way to combine one of my great passions with an employment opportunity? >> just make sure you thought it through. >> i am going off script now. you know i have got the skills. you have always said, "do what you love, and the money will follow." >> that is not the case with magic. >> what is that? i believe this is yours, sir. do you not want to ask how i did that? tavis: is the obama era at the right time -- i am not making judgment one way or another, but is this the right time for this type of sitcom? >> interestingly enough, the obama administration invited us to screen it. we got their blessing. ironically, the obama speech writer is our head writer, and so i think so. but the interesting thing about it, it is not necessarily a show about politics. it is a show about a family with the backup of politics. tavis: it is the white house.

( applause ) you can get ahead. doesn't matter what you look like, doesn't matter where you come

?" there is a big company that advertises- or really, i should say sponsors- the pbs show. it's viking river cruises, and they are showing trips along the river that give you castle views. is that helping the river cruise business? > > i think so, because a lot of people, they want to see europe, and they want a more authentic experience when they are staying there, and river cruising takes them to the heart of europe, into small little cities that they may not be able to get to otherwise, or at least with the ease of river cruising they wouldn't be able to. > i would be remiss if i didn't talk about the carnival cruise mishap. do you think something like that could hurt river cruise numbers? > > river cruising i don't think is going to hurt so much, but the ocean liners are probably going to get a little softer at the beginning, but they bounce back really fast as well, so i don't see any long- term effects where that is going to inhibit any bookings on that. > wally, great to speak with you today. continued success to you. > > thank you very much for having me again. still ahead, love is in the ai
